Terrapin Beer Company - So Fresh & So Green, Green. 6.6% ABV. 1pt 3.2oz can split between snifters. Best by 4/22/16.

Look. Settled a translucent copper color, with a one finger head of white foam from semi aggressive pour; subsided fairly quickly.

Smell: Dank, earthy hops right up front, along with pine and resin. Some undertones of orange peel, lemon zest, and citrus fruits.

Feel: Incredibly light body, smooth and carbonated.

Taste: Dank, bitter earthy hops immediately, but soon mellows out, and some of the citrus fruits, and sweet malts come into the mix. It finishes crisp and dry, while being sweet and malty, but not before one last bite of hops.

Overall: Compared to other IPAs I've had, this one, while still being hoppy and bitter, also had a lot more malt and sweetness to it. Has a nice crisp and dry finish, and incredibly light body.

1 pint, 3.2 oz. can split between two New Belgium snifters. Pours a lively, orange/tangerene and settles a copper color in the glass. Great clarity, and a good amount of carbonation. About 1 finger of off-white, bubbly foam on top each beer. Overly sweet, malty aroma with big notes of grapefruit, mango, and tangerene. Sweet notes of ripe fruit up front on the taste with a strong, bready malt backbone. I get a little hop bitterness middleways that intensifies slightly as it warms on the palate. Decently creamy mouthfeel, albeit a tad watery and abrasive on the finish. Not too bad, though. Not much to comment on on the aftertaste - a little bit of hops and a little bit of bready malt.

Overall, this one was decent. Initially I got a strong chemical/metalic taste but I guess I got used to it quickly; it was gone after a couple sips. This beer is balanced pretty well, although quite a bit sweeter than I prefer my IPAs. Not terrible, but I wouldn't buy again. Definitely not worth the $7.00/can price tag.

Light amber with large carbonation. Earthy and citrus on the nose. Might be an old can, a little piney and grassy taste, malt. Good fresh hop beer; nice balance.

A: poured from a tall boy can into a pint glass, orange amber colored with a large foamy white head that lingers leaving good lacing, clear

S: green and grassy, light citrus, slightly earthy

T: grassy, grain, slight fruity bubblegum, onion, grapefruit, honey

M: medium body with higher carbonation

O: love the references to Outkast and the can fitting my imperial pint glass perfectly, malt profile is nice, equinox as the dominant hop is funky

Tall pint plus can. Pours clean bright copper orange, thick foamy head that lasts, leaves rings of lace. Grass and pine with some grains in the aroma. Very clean fresh taste with piney grassy hops, citrus peel in the finish. Nice malt balance but overall hoppy. Thin to medium soft mouthfeel. Tasty fresh hop IPA, liked it.
